Us— Mr. preacher-weather prophet
Hicks says thatthe weather we will have
during the month of August will be
somewhat after this manner.
On the 2nd and 8rd of August will
center a reactionary wave of great
warmth, resulting in severe storms with-
in the period embraced between the 2nd
and night of the 4th. At this time we
will be nearing the center of the Venus
Equinox, and the phenomena will take
on characteristics so often defined as re-
sulting from that disturber. Excessive
heat is apt to end in lightning, thunder,
hail and wind, and a sudden change to
abnormally cool on the very heels of
great heat. The storm period, 8th to
12th, promises the most active and dan-
gerous storms of the month, having as
the disturbing causes “Vulcan” central
on the 8th, Venus central on the 9th,
New Moon on the 11th and Mercury
central on the 12th. There is reason to
apprehend violence in the elements be-
tween the 8th and 12th. The heat will
become intense before the storms appear,
the barometer will be depressed general-
ly, reaching .phenomenal “lows” at
some points, and cloud formations will
be black and ominous. Heavy hail,
thunder and wind may be expected, and
cloudbursts are sure to result here and
there. Such are the results ordinarily
following such a combination of causes,
but there are exceptional cases, when in-
stead of the heat breaking into storms
of rain, hail, wind and thunder, the
warmth is prolonged, growing more and
more oppressive, the life element in the
atmosphere seems exhausted, and the
sky assumes a gray to brassy aspect, an
incumbus seeming to fasten up all na-
ture, until violent earthquake phenome-
na break the spell and allow the ele-
ments to return to their normal condi-
tion. If perchance this particular per-
iod should take this turn, we call upon
the people and press everywhere to note
carefully whether or not it terminates af-
ter the manner we have indicated.
Whether it endsin storms orsceismic per-
turbations, there will be certain revul-
sions from great heat to very cool, with
probabilities of temperature falling al-
most or quite to the frost line in north-
ern regions—say from 11th to 14th,
About the 15th, reactionary temperature
with southerly winds will most likely
result in another spell of storminess, and
be followed by another northwesterly
inrush of cool air.
From the 18th to 22nd falls another
period of heat and storms. We name
the 18th, 20th and 21st as days on which
the chief disturbances will be at their
crisis. The moon’s first quarter on the
morning of the 19th in connection with
the prevailing Venus electric strain is
very apt to produce gales and thunder
squalls within twenty-four hours of 6 p-
m. on that date. Another series of dis-
turbance for two or three days will be
natural during this period, but the ba-
rometer, wind currents and temperature
will plainly announce when the storm
currents have been reduced to the nor-
mal--the wind coming cool and steadily
from the west and north—the barometer
moving upward, and temperature fall-
ing. Alter these disturbances there will
be a close approach to the frost line in
the north. Pleasant days and very cool
nights will follow up to reactionary
changes and storms on and touching the
26th and 27th. The full moon on the
27th will tend to centralize the distur-
bances on and around that date, and
will help to precipitate any tendency to
sceismic throes that may exist, such be-
ing more than probable at the time, if
electral storms should not have been fre-
quent and hard during the month. Au-
gust ends with the first stages of a storm
period coming into action—that is, ba-
rometer will be falling in the west, with
temperature rising in advance of it, fed
by the southerly air currents that trans-
port moisture, heat and electric force,
from the equatorial regions. August
storms in most of the northern hems-
pheres, will develop and move from the
northwest, the first marked indication of
their coming being generally a dark or
leaden bank across the northwest at sun-
set. There is cause for this. Itis the
return of our globe toward the autum-
nal equinox, and an effort of nature to
let in through our polar gates cooler
ozene and atmosphere from outer space.
could two persons be born at the same
time and die at the same time, at the
end of fifty years, and yet one of them
live a hundred days more than the oth-
er?” is a query propounded to the
writer the other day. Can you tell ?
Perhaps not. Well, the answer turns
out upon the familiar fact that a person
who goes around the world toward the
west loses a day, while the person who
travels in the opposite direction gains a
day. We will suppose then, that two
men in question were born in New
York, from whence a.trip around the
world may easily be made once a year.
One of them goes always toward the
west, the other toward the east. One
losses a day ever year, the other gains a
day every year,
after fifty years of age, one has seen
one hundred days more than the other.

be the opening of the opera house season
and a good show may be looked for.
—— While listening to the free show
in the Diamond, on Saturday night,
Gladstone, a young son of Hugh Tay-
lor, fell backward off the top rail of the
band pavilion, striking his head on the
hard street below. He was carried into
the office of Dr. Geo. F. Harris, in a
semi conscious condition, where his
wounds were dressed. No bones were
broken, though his skull received quite
a concussion.
——The Bellefonte ball club started
outon its trip on Monday morning.
Games have been played at Milton,
where wo won 13 to 1 ; at Bloomsburg,
where we won 13 to 10; at Williamsport,
where the score was 6 to 5 in our favor
at the end of the 8th inning, when a
rank decision of the umpire forced Cap-
tain Reed to take the team off the field.
The game will be contested.
——A slight blaze on the roof of a
small frame house occupied hy Abe
Jackson and family, on east High street,
called the entire fire department out on
Friday morning. In turning into Al-
legheny street, from Howard, the Logan
steamer horses were going at such speed
that driver Sam’l Guisewhite was
thrown from his seat and narrowly es-
caped being run over by the heavy en-
gine. Only his presence of mind in
holding onto the lines saved him. In
that way he was dragged along until
the team was stopped.
——Rev. Morris Swartz, who will be
remembered by most of our readers as
the youngest son of the late Dr. Geo,
M. Swartz, preached in the Methodist
church, in this place, on Sunday even-
ing. He is a graduate of Dickinson
college, at Carlisle, and is now filling a
charge at West Fairview, just across
the river from Harrisburg. His sermon
was listened to with.a keen interest by
the friends who filled the church, Dur-
ing the services Loe B. Woodcock sang
the “Ave Maria” and Mrs. North, of
Bradford, sang “Come Unto Me” a
rarely suitable selection for her rich
soprano voice.

AND MAL-PRACTICE.—The habeas cor-
pus proceedings in the case of John N.
‘Whan, who has been confined in the
Centre county jail since last May,
charged with abortion and mal-practice
on the person of Mrs. Maize Winkle-
man of Nittany all, were #gain sum-
moned before Judge Furst, on last Mon-
day morning. The prosecution had
time to prepare its side of the case and
the defense did not have the easy sail-
ing it had the week previous, when
Judge Furst neatly got out of releasing
the prisoner by granting a stay to the
The case occupied the attention of the
court during nearly the whole of Mon-
day. All of the witnesses that both
sides could summon were called for their
testimony. The commitment which
was supposed to have been irregular was
proven to beall right. Whan’s inter-
views were given and his kit of surgical
instruments were explained by Dr. Har-
ris, who also gave testimony regarding
the post-mortem on the body of Mrs.
Winkleman, which disclosed every evi-
dence of abortion. Perhaps the most
damaging bit of evidence brought out
was that of Ernest L. Eddy who ac-
companied the prisoner as far as the
Winkleman house on the day of the
crime. He testified that Whan was so
thoroughly disguised that no one would
have known him.
The evidence all in the court decided
to re-commit the prisoner in the sum of
$5,000. As he was unable to find
boudsmen he went back to jail to await
A Goop CarcH.—Our stalwart Dem-
ocratic friend Mr. J. I. Delong, of
Blanchard, has no idea of turning fisher-
man, but as an amateur in the business
thinks he can coax as many bites out of
the same number of bass, as any one
else. One day last week, in company
with Mr. John Wagner, of Milesburg
he tried his luck and in just
three hours landed 25 pounds of the
black beauties, one of them weighing
over 34 pounds. During this time, it is
said that Mr. Wagner, who imagines
he is a son of old Nimrod, had
not found a hole worth throwing
his bait into, and when the Liberty
township leader had packed his fish
into his basket and was ready to return
home, our Milesburg friend had not
experienced the pleasure of having a
bite. If Mr. Delong could only capture
Republicans as readily as he does bass,
the majority against him, in his town-
ship, wouldn't be as big each year as it
usually turns cut to be.

much to the saving of the furniture as
it was nearly all removed before the

brother, in Altoona, was so frightfully
burned that she can hardly recover. The
accident occurred at noon on Tuesday.
The girl was pouring the oil on the fire
when the flames leaped out, catching
her dress and burning her from head to
foot. All the hair was burned off her
head and she is a mass of the most
painful burns. She inhaled some of the
flames, thus burning her internally. She
